Very commercial. I did not like the ambiance and the presentation of the animals. All is done to make you spend money but the environment of the animals is pathetic

This was included on a all day tour of the island, so can't comment on entry costs. We have visited many excellent aquariums throughout the world, but this unfortunately isn't one of them. They have zero education for kids and have far too many fish...More

I must admit, I visited this attraction mindful of public opinion being very negative towards keeping animals in captivity and also some bad reviews written by other visitors. There may have been a change in management or some positive action taken to improve this attraction,...More

There is a lot wrong with this place and without ranting and getting emotional, here's why: - Very run down, dirty and obviously no landscaping or maintenance of the grounds. - Expensive! 750 baht for a walk you can complete in 15 minutes. - 'Aquarium'...More
